My deepest condolences to Lorie and the rest of the family.

The one thing that sticks out the most to me was Richards laugh. When we were young we were at the shore and when a big wave came Richard would shout out "It's a Momma" and then laugh hysterically and that laugh was just infectious. I'm glad I got to see Richard a few months ago when he came to Florida with Frank and their wives to visit Denis. We lost at pinochle to my parents but we had a lot of laughs while doing it! I'm sure that Richard, Tyler, Denis and Richards father Dan are having one hell of a game of croquet with Father Frank observing to minimize cheating. God Bless ya Rich and thanks for the laughs.
